Georg Philipp Telemann: Sonata In E Minor, TWV 41: E5 For Viola Da Gamba And Harpsichord By The Contre-Sujets

Rare instruments playing in continuo form

Cross the cello and the viola and one gets a viola da gamba - the rare instrument used in Telemann’s Sonata in E Minor, which gives this piece of music an original sound. Played with the continuo harpsichord, it transports the listener to the epicentre of Baroque times. Remarkably, Georg Philipp Telemann was a completely self-taught musician, nonetheless, one can hear his compositional skill throughout this glorious work.
